Fundraising for National Brain Appeal

Hackney Tennis coach, Raquel Garcia is fundraising for the National Brain Appeal and Hackney we want to give her all the support we can.

The National Brain Appeal helps to provide much needed funds to support The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and the Institute of Neurology, known as Queen Square. The aim of this charity is to improve the outcome and quality of life of patients with neurological conditions, above and beyond what the NHS can provide. They fund different areas such as education, technology, clinical trials, neurosurgery, etc. Find out more about the charity at https://www.nationalbrainappeal.org/

Tennis sessions for women players

Hackney Tennis currently runs two training and matchplay sessions for women players – Tennis Tuesdays and our Thursday Women’s Morning Session. See below for more information and how to book.


Tennis Tuesdays

Tennis Tuesdays is an LTA initiative encouraging women tennis players to get out on court, develop their tennis skills and enjoy the company of other players of a similar standard.

Clissold Park sessions have proved so popular we run them year-round. Book your sessions via the LTA website.

What can you expect from Tennis Tuesdays?

These are social tennis sessions for women players and include warm-up drills, match play and tactical tips with the addition of Cardio Tennis rotations for those who want to improve their fitness as well as their tennis.

Equipment is provided if you don’t have your own – just wear comfortable clothes and appropriate shoes (tennis shoes or x-trainers).

This is suitable for players with some experience and / or looking to return to tennis.

Regular weekly Tuesday slots, the sessions run 7.30-9.00pm at Clissold Park. They run on a drop-in basis and are £11 per session. Sessions are bookable via the LTA website.

Please contact Raquel Garcia with any queries.


Thursday Women’s Morning Session

Open to players of all levels, our Thursday morning session runs from 10am to 12pm at Clissold Park.
